Water molecules dont necessarily dissolve in water. Because water is a polar molecule, it has a slightly positive and slightly negative side to each molecule. The positive and negative sides of each water molecule are attracted to other positive and negative sides of other water molecules.

How do water molecules dissolve a salt?

The water molecules move around the salt ions In water, the salt separates into positive and negative ions.

Do non polar molecules dissolve in water?

No, non-polar molecules do not dissolve in water.   Remember, like substances dissolve like substances (like dissolves  like). Water is POLAR; therefore, non-polar molecu

What happens to salt molecules when they dissolve in water?

The salt molecules are "torn apart" by the water, and are reduced to sodium (Na+) and chlorine (Cl-) ions. It is the ions that go into solution and "float around" there. Note

How do polar molecules dissolve in water?

Dissolving is just when water bonds and separates the cation and anion. Water's polarity is the reason why it surrounds each ion and separates it from the oppositely charged

What types of molecules dissolve in water?

Polar molecules tend to dissolve in water more readily than non-polar molecules.
